Witches and Spiders and Rats, Oh My!

     I've taken a bit of a break from tablescaping lately. Since I love Halloween, I decided it was the perfect time to set a pretty?? table. I'm not sure rats and spiders could ever be considered pretty!

     A Halloween table runner, silver chargers, black WalMart dinner plates and Cracker Barrel salad plates along with black flatware set the mood. Black stemware and small cordial glasses finish the setting. Does anyone know the pattern or maker of the cordials?
My husband found them at a garage sale recently.

Layered black napkins and Halloween napkins topped with beaded spiders...creepy!

A witches hat and a rat...

The Halloween brush tree was a new purchase this year at HomeGoods.

Because the haunted house candleholder faced one side of the table,
I needed to build something on the other side.
The tree and a few sparkly pumpkins filled in the space nicely.

Of course it wouldn't be Halloween without a
 little candlelight and darkness!



I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch

Love your Halloween table -- how adorable. Is adorable a word you can use to describe Halloween spookies? Well, I say YES!
Sorry don't know the maker of your glasses, but we have loads of them that my Mom left; I think Fostoria made a pattern similar to that.

Whoever made them, they are pretty!

Well, when you jump back in, you jump back in with both feet! Love the black cut-out in the centerpiece. Thank you for sharing your perfectly spooky design. Cherry Kay

Looks like such fun for Halloween! Love the creativity of the tablescapes you make.

We're sitting here watching the ball game, but listening to our neighbors and their kids, whooping it up next door with a big Halloween party. We were invited but begged off - I think we're just too old!

Have you visited BB lately? I'm concerned about him.

Wonderfully spooky table, Sue & I love your blog's wallpaper, too. What a "Hoot"!!

I saw where you've installed a storm door & thought that you couldn't hang a wreath anymore. May I suggest the 3M Command stick-on hangers to you? They work just great on the glass & if you want to remove it, just pull on the adhesive strip to take it off. I use them all over the place, as I change things often & need hooks at different heights often for various displays.

Hope it helps you.

BOO....BOO...Guess WHO???
Hi Sue Sweetie, what a boo-ti-ful share today. I so enjoyed sitting at the table with you. My goodness you have such a wonderful flare. Truly you do. Decorating is definitely your thing. You are a Hostess with the Mostess. Love the plates, how sweet. Love my Cracker Barrel store and their sales are the best. Just the best.

Love the napkins with the beaded spiders. Now how cute is that? Just the perfect touch. That table runner is so elegant, and I love, LOVE the center piece. Your little Halloween decorated tree is so perfect for the occasion.

It would be so much fun to dine at one of your gorgeous tables. I love it. Thank you for sharing sweetie. You have been on my mind. Hugs and more hugs to you. Hope your sweet Daddy is doing well. Now that I have a computer again, I will have to scroll through and see what you have been up to.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Jacqueline said...

Sue, I am such a nut for all of this. Everything on your table is fun. Those beaded spiders for napkin rings are just eery! Love the fun plates, the sparkly pumpkins and that great tree. I bet it is so fun to see in person and especially by candlelight!

JUST ME said...

Happy Halloween!!

I would love to share a Halloween meal at that table! I'd bring the candy...:)
